“Peaceful break”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

A good place to get away from Amsterdam traffic (you still have to watch out for bikes) and enjoy a stroll like the locals. It was a good contrast to the museums and buildings to sit in the shade in the park and enjoy our picnic lunch. It is a well-designed urban park with ponds, trees, natural areas, artwork, and people just enjoying themselves and relaxing.

“Chill in the evening”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Do visit the vondelpark, situated about 4 KM from Dam Square. A team may be boarded from dam square for reaching it. In the evening, it is full of local people jogging, talking and enjoying. A supermarket is nearby from where u can purchase a beer and relax in the garden. A very good place for seeing the local culture and enjoying a picnic.

“Take time for a picnic”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were in Amsterdam for 5 days in late June. The weather was perfect and we walked through parts of the park a few times. On our last day, a Saturday, we bought some cheese, meat, bread and wine at Markt and had a picnic in the park next to a pond. We so enjoyed hanging out with mostly locals and their dogs and soaking up the sun. There was an ice cream truck so we topped off our little picnic with ice cream. Vondelpark is a great break from exploring the city.

“Beautiful in the Sunshine!!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Well worth taking a stroll around this beautiful park in the south of the city. Really pleasant and it seems everyone in Amsterdam goes here to enjoy the scenery and sunshine.

We stopped at a café in the middle of the park worth going upstairs and enjoying the views from the upper deck while having a beer or coffee.
